I'm a always curious about how we use our knives at work. What types of jobs require a lot of knife use. Aside from the obvious kinds of jobs like a butcher, what jobs require you to use a pocket knife? I have two jobs that see a good bit of knife use. From 7:30 to 12:30 I work at a local school district in the supply center. I cut open boxes and break down pallets. Lots of cardboard and plastic. Second job is my own business as a lawn maintenance -grass cutter, leaf clean up, snow removal etc.... With this work I cut a lot of different things from plastic strapping to small branches. What works best for me is a Spyderco Salt 1 SE. What kind of a job do you have that requires a lot of cutting?
